Ryan Lackey

Ryan Lackey has been a cypherpunk since the early 1990s. As one of the founders of the world's first offshore datahaven (HavenCo on Sealand), he built physical infrastructure to help others engage in jurisdictional arbitrage. In addition to some early anonymous electronic cash projects, he's been a war zone entrepreneur in Iraq and Afghanistan, founded a YC-backed hardware server security startup (sold to Cloudflare), and now works on hardware and systems security for high-risk applications (travel, cryptocurrency, and high-profile targets) and heads security for the Tezos Foundation.
